SUCCESS STORIES 
   
 
David from Berkeley County says "
I have been tobacco free since August 29, 2016 and I just finished my final coaching session.  I want to thank the Quit Line and especially Mandy for helping me get this far.  Mandy certainly contributed to making the job of quitting easier and totally understood where I was in the process of not smoking.  It was real pleasure of having her as my quit coach.   She is a true asset to your organization".
